"While the market continues to give the Linux companies hard times, it's hard to see why Red Hat's stock continues to fall. At 1 p.m. today, its Nasdaq stock was down just more than 6 percent. Meanwhile, Red Hat's earnings beat the whisper number by a penny."

"The company's actual revenue, $13.1 million for the fourth quarter ending on Feb. 29, was up 38 percent over 1999 fourth quarter's 9.4 million. The most recent quarter's revenue was almost 25 percent higher than the preceding third quarter's $10.5 million."

"Red Hat 6.2... essentially is a cleaned up, improved version with a better installation routine. Although, it does have one major change: This edition comes with an option to install without changing a DOS/Windows-based computer hard drive partitioning. That means would-be Linux customers easily can try Red Hat Linux on for size without blowing away their existing Windows systems. You could have done that in the past, but Red Hat makes this version idiot proof."
